Why Pursue an M.A. in Biblical Studies?
Build a deeper understanding of the Bible. Inspire communities through faith. Share the Gospel in relevant ways.
Wheaton College Graduate School offers a revitalized M.A. in Biblical Studies (MABS), with classes offered on campus or from a distance in our flexible learning format. Whether you lead a Bible study, ministry or even a church, this program offers ways to understand how God’s Word relates to our lives, our church, and the society around us.
Why Study Biblical Studies at Wheaton?
You will gain the academic skills necessary for advanced study and service in the church and society through formation in three interrelated areas: biblical and theological knowledge; academic skills and critical reflection; and Christian life and service. Our graduate programs are committed to stimulating learning that bears fruit in lives of faithful thinking and witness for Christ and His kingdom.
You will discuss key positions within the evangelical global church in a community that values charitable conversation. Together you and your peers will wrestle through the hard questions of faith with faculty willing to walk alongside you to find answers in evangelical theology and exegesis.
The M.A. in Biblical Studies offers classes on campus and online with our flexible learning format. The program currently allows students from a distance to enroll in one online course each semester, with more plan for the future.

BITH Grad Women's Fellowship
The BITH Grad Women’s Fellowship was started over a decade ago to provide a space for female graduate students in the department to meet together regularly throughout the year with female faculty, build relationships, provide support, and enjoy each other’s company. The group was started by Dr. Karen Jobes (Emeritus) and is led today by Dr. Jennifer Powell McNutt. Food, fellowship, and prayer are the focus of our time together. If you are a female BITH student in an MA or Ph.D. program then please join us!
